Very impressed with both the quality of food and service. Five of us had dishes from the special breakfast menu and the "ranchero poached eggs" came out tops. Delicious coffee too!

Situated in the middle of the nursery, the small restaurant has seating inside and outside with shade. The menu is basic and includes muffins, croissants, scones, salads, wraps and a few desserts. The portions are sufficient and well presented. The coffee is good. Service is efficient and friendly. There is no wifi. The toilets are clean.

Good for breakfast and brunch. Can sit outside (under cover for wet days) and be amongst all the plants. Also a large gardening store within complex.

A regular weekly haunt of ours I can highly recommend their wraps - but do ask for a doggie bag as you won't get through one on your own!

A nice venue in a lovely setting. Outside as well as inside seating. Convenient for a stop after browsing the floral options. Menu is limited and lacks excitement and creativity which was a disappointment.

The adults meals were really excellent. We enjoyed the grilled yellow tail and mash. The kids hated their toasted cheese and chips. The service was slow and we also did not receive a good welcome. I have received much better service and a good warm welcome before so I was very disappointed. To top it off our waitress was discussing... More

The service when we arrived was good but the longer we stayed it seemed to deteriorate. Drinks were forgotten and food delivery was slow. While the apple crumble portion is tasty and very large, there is no crumble so it was more like an apple stew on my plate.

The café forms part of a Starke Ayres nursery, and is in a beautiful setting. It is great for coffee/tea and cakes, and it has a good lunch menu. Most of its offerings are unfortunately overpriced.

Thansk for your review James, we have just recently been forced to increase our prices due to rampant food inflation (14% increase in 4 months) and are currently running food cost around 45% with minimal wastage. I believe we are still marginally cheaper than most of our local competitors and won't be considering another increase till next year depending on... More

It has been a while since we last visited. A wonderful setting in an established nursery. It was a perfect Autumn day and we looked forward to our lunch. I ordered Thai Fish Cakes but after a while was told that the last portion had just been served - no problem. I then ordered the Prawn Salad with avo and... More

Thanks for your honest review. I was personally in the kitchen yesterday and apologise for your experience. Fortunately we had an record day on Sunday which completely wiped out the kitchen of stock and were unable to make new batch of fish cakes in time.. the prawn salad is served with a mango and sweet chilli vinaigrette.

I come quite often to the Starke Ayres nursery and like the setting of Fraiche Ayres inside. There is an inside and outside sitting area. The menu is basic with a typical breakfast, lunch or tea menu. The scrambled eggs are nice. Had lemon meringue which was particularly yummy. The only down side is that service is slow. It takes...
